Latest revision as of 20:50, 18 July 2018

This page contains lists of articles and images which are recommended for deletion. Any Wikitraveller can recommend an article or image for deletion, and any Wikitraveller can comment on the deletion nomination. Articles and images are presumed guilty until proven innocent. After fourteen (14) days of discussion, if a consensus is reached to retain an article, it won't be deleted. Otherwise it will be deleted by an administrator. Please read the Nominating and Commenting sections prior to nominating articles/images or commenting on nominations.

Nominating[edit]

The basic format for a deletion nomination is the following:

===[[Chicken]]===
* '''Delete'''.  Not a valid travel article topic. ~~~~

Please follow these steps when nominating an article or image for deletion:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion. If you are unsure, bring up the issue on the talk page.
  2. For the article or image being proposed for deletion, add a {{vfd}} tag so that people viewing the article will know that it is proposed for deletion. The {{vfd}} tag must be the very first thing in the article, right at the very top, before everything else.
  3. Add a link to the article or image at the end of the list below, along with the reason why it is being listed for deletion. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~"). List one article or image per entry.
  4. If you're nominating an image for deletion, make sure it's actually located on the English Wikitravel - images that are located on Wikitravel Shared must be nominated for deletion there instead.

Commenting[edit]

All Wikitravellers are asked to state their opinion about articles and images listed for deletion. The format for comments is:

===[[Chicken]]===
* '''Delete'''.  Not a valid travel article topic. TravelNut 25:25, 31 Feb 2525 (EDT)
* '''Keep'''.  There is a town in [[Alaska]] called Chicken. ~~~~

When leaving comments:

  1. First read the deletion policy and verify that the article or image really is a candidate for deletion.
  2. You may vote to delete, keep, or redirect the article. If your opinion is that the article should be kept or redirected, please state why. If you are in favor of redirection, you may suggest where it should be redirected to. Sign your vote using four tildes ("~~~~").

Deleting, or not[edit]

After fourteen (14) days of discussion, there will probably be consensus one way or the other. If the consensus is to keep, redirect or merge, then any Wikitraveller can do it. If you are redirecting, please remember to check for broken redirects or double redirects as a result of your move. Remove any VFD notices from that page, and archive the deletion discussion as described in the next section.

If the result is delete, then only an administrator can delete. Check if any article links to the image or article in question. After removing those links, delete the image or article. However, if the image is being deleted because it has been moved to the shared repository with the same name, do not remove links to the images, as the links will be automatically be pointed to the shared repository.

Archiving[edit]

After you keep/redirect/merge/delete the article, move the deletion discussion to the Archives page for the appropriate month. The root Archives page has a directory. Note that it's the month in which the action was taken, rather than when the nomination was first posted, that should be used for the archived discussion; that way, recourse to the deletion log can lead subsequent readers right to the discussion (at least for the pages that were deleted).

If the nominated article was not deleted, then place another (identical duplicate) copy of the deletion discussion on the talk page of the article being kept or redirected.

Nominations[edit]

Smartphones[edit]

Smartphones are very useful, but they don't really fit in a travel guide. Information about GPS, for example, can go in its own article, so smartphones themselves just don't have anything to do with travel. SelfieCity (talk) 19:53, 17 July 2018 (EDT)

DEET[edit]

Better Wikitravel style to call the page "Deet" instead of "DEET" so I've moved "DEET" to "Deet". But "DEET" needs to be deleted too. SelfieCity (talk) 20:44, 17 July 2018 (EDT)

DAYVILLE, CT[edit]

Poorly formatted redirect page title in multiple ways: capitalization is just one of them. SelfieCity (talk) 20:46, 17 July 2018 (EDT)

ARLINGHAM[edit]

Again, manual of style. I'm referring to the redirect title, not the article itself, which is Arlingham. SelfieCity (talk) 20:48, 17 July 2018 (EDT)

  • Comment: I've been searching and there are many, many more of these kinds of titles that do not follow manual of style when it comes to capitalization. The Dayville redirect above is different because it has the "CT" at the end but in other cases should we maybe just leave these capitalization issues as they are, since they're just redirects? SelfieCity (talk) 20:52, 17 July 2018 (EDT)

TAS[edit]

I don't know much about Tasmania (where this redirect goes), but from what I know I don't see why anyone would type this into search. SelfieCity (talk) 16:45, 18 July 2018 (EDT)
